LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 11, which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

Instructions:
Note: You may use Odin instead of Heimdall, for this you will need to rename the recovery image to recovery.img and pack it into a tar archive.

Reporting Bugs
  • DO NOT Report bugs if you're running a custom kernel or you installed Xposed
  • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
  • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
  • If the problem disappears after running "setenforce 0" from a root shell, grab /data/misc/audit/audit.log

Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. Please also do not report known issues. Any bug not reported in the bug report format below may be ignored.

Code:
What is your--
LineageOS version:

wanted to upgrade how it's described on the lineageOS wiki, however I got an error message, followed by being stuck at a "entering fastboot..."-screen.
I will try install stock Rom and repeat install from there.

Edit:
Restarting the process with stock rom helped.

I'm trying the get the first offical nightly build installed and it gets stuck on the blue lineage os loading arch. Anyone else get it to boot to setup? I'm using lineage recovery now. I was going to go back to unofficial and twrp but twrp builds were removed from the twrp thread.

Installed yesterday without any problems. I was running the unofficial los prior. Make sure to use the matching los recovery.

Hello,
as the developpement of 17.1 has stopped I'll try in the next days with 18.1. But I have a question:
after wipe in Recovery can I update the LineageOS Recovery than reboot into Recovery and flash the LOS18.1 via LOS Recovery from my external SD-Card and after that Magisk? That's the procedure I did in the past with TRWP but as I never worked with LOS Recovery before (as well as a decrypted internal SD-Card) I wanted first be sure about the procedure.

Sure, you could also sideload lineage and magisk but external sdcard should work too.

Is it safe to dirty flash official 18.1 over the unofficial?
Thanks so much for all your hard work on this!

I already answered this, see this post

Sorry I have another urgent question how can I update LOS Recovery (from 17.1 to 18.1)? In TRWP you can change into "install an image" than the recoveries are recognised in LOS Recovery there is no such possibililty you can only flash .zip files no other files are recognised.
Should I transform the image file into a zip file or how do you do that? Sorry I'm only used to TRWP

If you are still on 17.1 recovery you'll have to flash 18.1 recovery with Heimdall/Odin like you did when installing lineage for the first time.
Starting with 18.1 you are also able to flash it via fastbootd in recovery.

Thank you very much for your advice! But after my successfull update to official 18.1 including LOS Recovery I have a new problem, in devellopper modus is no longer the possibilitiy for enlarged reboot, so I can't reboot in recovery. Is this intended and if so why and is there a possibility to circumvent that? All in all I'm not very happy with 18.1 so I'm thinking going back to 17.1 which is unfortunately no longer maintained.

Advanced reboot setting was moved to System -> Gestures -> Power Menu -> Advanced Restart
Do you have any other problem with 18.1?

By the way is there a possibility to support your work - at least with some spending? I found no possibility yet

There's a paypal link in my profile if that's what you mean, thanks for considering to support me!

Thank you very much - for both information, as I said I suppose I'm getting old (72 year old grandmother...). as for the other problem I'm stuck with Nanodroid it's not possible to flash via Magisk, but that's not a ROM problem it's linked to Nanodroid. Your ROM is fine thanks a lot!!!

    Is adoptable storage working on this build? (using 18.1 20210929). I've popped in a 512 GB SD and the adoptable storage option is grayed out when setting up storage.
    Same problem with either a 128 and a 200 gb card...

    Hm alright, I can supply logs if you would want to? How do you install it from an external SD card? Is that an option in LineageOS recovery?
    Also
    • Is it possible to lock the bootloader, or will this cause unwanted behavior?
    • Will the LineageOS recovery update as well if updating the LineageOS rom?
    If you have an external SD card in the tablet, it also shows the LOS recovery (under the sideload) this can also read the recovery, as it is not affected by FBE. Under no circumstances would I recommend locking the bootloader again if you want a safety Net Pass, please flash magisk.


    SafetyNet (LineageOS 18.1)

    1) Enable settings MagiskHide
    2) install MagiskHide Props Config(Magisk module)
    3) Open the terminal
    4) su
    5) Type "props"
    6) Edit 1 fingerprint of the device
    7) Choose a certified fingerprint
    8) 21 Oneplus
    9) Find an Android 11 device (OnePlus 8T global 44)
    10) Follow the instructions
    11) Restart
    12) Clear Google Play Store Data
    13) Check SafetyNet (should pass)
    14) Open MagiskHide (Magisk -> Tap on the Shield symbol)
    15) Check all apps that do not require root privileges

    Pls more details.
    How to?
    I'm in Recovery Lineageos.
    And?
    Advanced - Apply update - Choose from sdcard ? and than give him Masgisk-xx.x(xxx100).apk.zip ?

    I see a fault message and a question: Error: 21
    Signature verification failed
    Install anyway?
    Yes, Install anyway, rename magisk-xxx.apk to magsik-xxx.zip and flash.

    I ordered yesterday the tablet and canceled it today after I found these issues with the OEM unlock option. I am an absolute beginner with LineageOS. This would be my first device with it.

    I just read the instruction of the e foundation even if they don't support the S6 lite. They mention a command line option to enable OEM unlock. Hopefully this is not a stupid suggestion to work around the problem with the GUI. Could that help?

    https://doc.e.foundation/pages/enable-usb-debugging
    The issue this guy has is not common.
    Nothing has been "patched" or whatever.

    Somebody knows how fast to root TAB S6 lite with Magisk?
    Thank you.
    very fast, download the app, name it as .ZIP, copy it to the external SD card and flash it using the linear recovery ....
    .or go to recovery and sideload the magisk APK, that's it
